Chester County Fund for Women and Girls Accepting Applications for Core Grants

CCFWG’s mission is to lead and unite the community through philanthropy and advocacy to ensure that women and girls have resources and opportunities to thrive.  To achieve this, CCFWG is looking to award grants to organizations or partnerships that demonstrate the ability to advance CCFWG’s mission.

The objective of CCFWG’s grantmaking activities is to create positive impact in the four community-identified priority areas for women and girls.  As a result, CCFWG will support organizations that address the following priorities:

  • Meet the core needs of women and girls;
  • Improve access to economic opportunities for women and girls;
  • Promote health and wellness by addressing needs specifically related to the health of women and girls; and
  • Invest in systems and sustainable change efforts to challenge gender inequality

Examples of services provided by our grantees include, but are not limited to:

  • Vocational training and workforce preparation
  • STEM programming for girls
  • Case management for teenage mothers
  • Improved access to women’s health service
  • Domestic violence services
  • Housing and homelessness prevention
  • Campaign to raise awareness about gender disparity in number of locally elected officials
  • Youth development programming focused on girls leadership and/or empowerment

Through investment in these areas, CCFWG hopes to play an active role in providing equality and security for women and girls, making our communities stronger and more vibrant for everyone.

Applications for the Core Grants Program are now being accepted until January 11, 2019.  Optional Information Session Conference Calls:  December 13th, 2018 at 3:00pm and December 14th, 2018 at 10:00am.  No registration is required.
